It's Blog Hop Time

It's the 25th and the PTI Blog hop is here again - YEAH!  
The challenge is as follows:

In honor of school going back into session everywhere, we thought it would be fun to issue a Brown Bag
Challenge.  We want to see what you can do to dress up, alter, change an ordinary brown lunch bag into
a paper crafting work of art.  

I have been thinking about this challenge since it was posted.  I had everything planned in my head and couldn't wait to find time to play.  I was very excited about creating this project until I sat down to work on it and realized I didn't have any lunch bags! LOL!!  So my ideas got put on the back burner and I improvised.




I found a pack of colored paper gift bags that are the size of a lunch bag and went from there.   I decided to make a teacher gift for the first day of school.  I used the Home Made stamp set to create my windows and door.  I added some depth to the door with the awesome Background Basics Woodgrain.  I just got this set and I all ready love it.
